Facebook Contest Winner announced!

Little more than a month has passed since we launched "Post your favorite quote contest" and we are glad to finally announce the winner. Congratulations to Singer Karina from Germany on winning this contest with her favorite quote by Paulo Coelho and on receiving Prestigio eBook Reader PER3162B!

The quote Karina has won with, is taken from the novel "Brida", the story about a young Irish girl and her quest for knowledge. All the way searching for the mysteries of life, Brida is being lead to people of great wisdom, who begin teach her about the world.

"Wenn jemand seinen Weg gefunden hat, darf er keine Angst haben. Er muss auch den Mut aufbringen, Fehler zu machen" (When you find your way you cannot be scared. You need to be brave enough to take wrong steps. The deceptions, failures, lack of enthusiasm, are tools that God places in our way to reveal the path).

This is an amazing book and a very wise quote, Karina, no wonder your quote got all 2058 "likes"!

We want to express appreciation for the activity, zeal, keenness and passion about the contest to Claudia Stanescu from Italy, who was so close to winning with 2029 "likes" and to unimer john Sta Ana whose quote had 1850 "likes".

We’re overall stoked with how well the contest went - we got hundreds of entries from around the world, all with amazing, smart, inspiring and beautiful quotes, and a ton of people passionate about reading.

We want to thank absolutely everyone for entering the contest and for all the great comments you made on our Facebook page - much appreciated!

There will definitely be more contests this year, so make sure you keep an ear out for those!

Dear Karina, you'll be contacted via email with instructions on how to get your new Prestigio eBook Reader.

As for everyone else, don't fret you haven’t won because we'll hold another contest very soon and you all will have chance to win more amazing prizes from Prestigio.  As they say "A winner never stops trying" Tom Landry .
